Philly indie/alt-rock four-piece Hop Along—one of our 100 Bands You Need To Know In 2015—who have been gaining significant traction with the release of their most recent album, Painted Shut, have been announced as the lead support on an upcoming run of Modest Mouse tour dates; another great opportunity for much-deserved exposure. On Facebook, the band shared their delight with the announcement: "We are going on tour with Modest Mouse and our hearts are dangerously full of excitement and joy."
